We toured the grounds and outside the gates. Seeing all the stones representing the countries was inspiring. The peaceful surroundings gave us a sense of pride

An interesting tour. The guide was very informative and knowledgeable. You get to see the various chambers and find out all about the different gifts given from the member states during the building of the palace. If you can't get on a tour the visitors centre is worth a visit as it explains about the work that goes on in... More

Worth a look, even if you're not going inside. There are some interesting signs outside describing the history and such.

Passed by just to gape at the building from the fence but then entered the visitors center to see what was inside ... ended up spending an hour with the audio guide to learn about this idealistic and worthy international endeavor. I didn't expect the visitors center to be so interesting and now really wish that we had timed our... More

The vision for this building, its funding, and its actual construction, makes it very interesting, worth visiting. I would go again. The shop/visitor's centre is excellent too.

The hour long tour takes you into the Peace Palace where you see the courts of International Justice and the Permanent Court of Arbitration. The building is beautiful and packed with gifts from all over the world. The tour is free, as is the visitor's center. Book the tour in advance as the places are limited. The visitor's center is...

We went to see this Palace in the afternoon and we were just given a photo opportunity outside as the place is closed. The sun was on the back of the building so the shots were not so clear anyway.

The visitor centre offers a free 30 minute audio tour which sets the scene and gives some insight into the building of the Peace Palace - it is recommended that you arrive in time to do this before going through security and on a guided tour of the actual Peace Palace. We had luckily booked tickets in advance as people... More

We visited the Peace Palace on a tour of the Hague and although we were not allowed inside we did see quite a bit of the palace from the outside. We also saw the world peace flame which is located on the outside of the palace.
